Deliver data pipelines at the speed of business
As a data engineer, you are responsible for laying the groundwork for data analysis and modeling. You acquire, clean, transform, and publish data to facilitate its use by other systems, applications, and people. Building trustworthy data pipelines is challenging, however, as data sources proliferate and quality is often hard to ascertain.

Using Alation’s intelligent SQL editor, you can rapidly query, prepare, and publish data no matter where it resides.
Visualize, manage, and monitor your data pipelines
Tracking data transformations is key to understanding and monitoring your data pipeline. Alation enables you to visualize end-to-end lineage and perform impact analysis to manage the downstream effect of changes. With Alation, you can also monitor your data pipeline by subscribing to alerts on changes in the data environment.

Ensuring continuous delivery of new and improved analytical insights shouldn’t be a goal you set for next year. It should be happening now. With Alation’s native version control and change management capabilities, you can overcome data fragmentation challenges to gain a single view of all enterprise data assets.
Collaborate with your peers
Collaborating with everyone in your organization – from data novices to experts – to uncover tribal knowledge is essential. With Alation’s intelligent SQL editor, you can collaborate on queries and data preparation to reduce query sprawl. With Alation conversations, you can chat with SMEs directly to get pointed in the right direction and ensure you are always leveraging the most relevant data assets.
Quickly understand your data
Quality data is essential for training AI models and applying machine learning models to business questions. The traditional approach of running a manual review of each dataset or running algorithms to understand the quality of the data is time consuming and resource intensive. With data profiling, Alation helps you gain more understanding of the data objects to make better data decisions, quickly.
